Ive just read that Looch is going to release his headline prediction soon through his www.readmymind.co.uk website. Im really looking forward to this and can't wait to get my hands on a copy as I know it will blow peoples minds. I remember reading about it on his blog http://looch.co.uk/the-prediction/ when he did what I think is the best headline prediction Id ever read about. He even had the police involved and had the prediction sealed and kept in an evidence room at a police station beforehand. The sealed envelope was opened by a journalist who then took out and read the predictions. This is going to be the must buy release of the year.

Hi Looch, Ive seen on your blog that you wrote this "With the latest development to ‘The Article’, the participant is now able to remove the prediction from inside the envelope themselves! " That sounded amazing! Now Ive seen the video for the load on the read my mind Facebook page that you put up the other day. It looks incredible, so clean. For those who are curious Ive put a link so you can find it easier (https://www.facebook.com/Readmymindltd/videos/1940388212911288/) I can't wait to get my hands on it when released. How is it progressing? It it still an August September release?

The Article by Looch - A Review
After talking to Looch in PM's about this he very kindly sent me a preview release of The Article and I've been playing with it for a few weeks and here are my thoughts. I should say that I believe there will just be 100 made so if you were pondering of getting it, or had considered a purchasing a headline prediction type of effect at some point you had better aware of the size of the run as its sure to sell out!
Its has a very clean reveal and is easy to use and it looks stunning both as a device (as it looks very plain) and as a performance from an audience point of view.
Your revealed prediction is in an envelope taped on a sheet of paper clipped onto a clipboard which is sealed in a jiffy bag.
The awesome part is that the spectator can reach in and take the clipboard out of the jiffy bag themselves and you don't have to muck about with doing anything naughty as its being taken out. With all of those convincers in place. this will fool absolutely everyone that you show it to both magicians and laypeople.
The clipboard is made to a high standard. Its 16cm by 24 cm and fills well in a Jiffy bag size 3. Its custom milled and not cheap crappy plastic, this is built to last and has had a lot of thought put into it. Things like the rivets holding the clip part on protrude out the back because it makes it that much easier to pick it up if its lying on a table top, the clip part sits in a milled recess so the top runs inline with the board as well as a few other things that I can't tell you. These little details that make it a great product.
The online instructional video is really well filmed with clear explanations and running at just over 40 minutes, it looks very professional, filmed from a couple of angles and the audio especially is clear and not sounding like it’s recorded in a biscuit tin (which I hate) There is also going to be a PDF instruction. The instructions on setting it up, along with examples of usage and variations on the envelope idea are concise and shows the amount of thought that's gone into the presentation as well as the creation of the effect. Also don't think that you won't use it as you don't to TV/radio/media shows as was my first thoughts. It can be used in a parlour environment with the jiffy bag given to the host the week before. If the thought of doing a headline prediction worries you in case there is terrible news that day it could be used for predictions of the evenings events for a parlour show or use your local paper which generally has local news and not national news. Obviously I can't tell you too much about methods etc. however Looch has got a website readmymind.co.uk and a Facebook page - search Facebook for Read My Mind Ltd which is where you can find some videos of it in action including the load as well as order details. He's posted links further up this thread. He expects to be shipping next week. If you have read The Black Project then this is the one he used to fool the police with a few years ago.

Thanks for your feedback Joel, its much appreciated. The Article offers fantastic flexibility for performers wanting to either perform a Headline Prediction / Publicity Stunt or even a Confab or Climax to your parlour show. I release products that I myself have used and have worked with and want to be associated with my name, everything is done for a reason and looks like it does because it needs to be.

The Article will be released within 24hrs
